poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state virtual tie yet there obama leads by two points in the real clear politics average of the recent ohio polls. romney went ahead with afternoon rally in iowa, but that is it for at least a day as the campaign takes a backseat to the storm. romney closing argument for final stretch is dubbed day one, job one, referring to the economy. he promises tax relief. north american energy independence. to repeal obamacare, block military cuts and balance the budget among other things. all of that is on hold. romney tonight will spend overnight in dayton, ohio, returning there without planned or scheduled campaign events tomorrow. it will likely be relief oriented but not clear it will take place in iowa. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign does
voting. we'll take a look at how president obama and mitt romney are doing in some key states. plus the newsroom edition of office politics. i'm going to talk with several of my colleagues about whether america is at a crossroads in this election.

is a key battle ground state. but that is a key part of the obama campaign strategy, urging people to get out and vote early. so we are here in new hampshire, which is another key battle ground state. president obama will be speaking here a little bit later on this afternoon. he will be joined by music icon james taylor. this is the president's sixth visit to new hampshire. doesn't have as many electoral votes as colorado. it only has four electoral votes. but those are four important electoral votes because this race is so razor tight, alex. president obama won this state in 2008 and hasn't seen some of the same effects of the economic downturn as other states in fact the unemployment rate here is at 5.7%. it's far below the national average. but of course mitt romney has a home in this state. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he carries a lot of weight here in this state as well. i expect from president obama takes the podium later on this afternoon you will hear him continue his message to middle class voters trying to make the case that he is the candidate to best prese
difference, because obama has over 800 of these field offices, concentrated in the swing states, you know, the eight or 10 or 12 states that are really crucial in this election. the romney campaign has about 300. so there's april quantitative difference, and there is some political science research showing that just having that field office, being on the ground in a certain community, does increase your share of the vote. but then there's a qualitative difference as well. the obama campaign, it's almost like a starbucks or a mcdonald's, a franchise operation, where every office is very much the same. it's all controlled by headquarters. they're all working off the same game plan, right down to every single office has what looks like this sort of nice grass-roots touch, a poster on the wall that says i support the president because -- and then everybody's handwritten in their reasons that they love obama underneath. every single office has that same poster. so it's very standardized, very controlled, very disciplined, and they're all working off the same plan. romney actually does not have
to president obama's numbers nationally, and especially in the swing states in the southwest because they are not gathering the strength of the latino vote out there. >> we're going to talk a little bit more about that in a moment, because you're right about that. amy holmes, pick a state for me first. >> i've got to agree with maria that ohio is the state. it's the conventional wisdom, no republican president has won the presidency without ohio. i'll be honest with you, your producers asked me to look at the electoral map last night. i watch bbc detective shows, like a lot of americans. i think we're looking at this race nationally and we're looking at national trends. i think it's very telling that the president of the united states was the first sitting president to cast his vote early in person. i think that president obama is looking at his own numbers and is seeing that the tide is shifting against him and a very big part of the president's strategy is to get that early voting out now in favor before november 6th. before his support is eroding even further. >> where is his supp
, florida, ohio, virginia. obama is winning in all three of those states now and by some margin, number one. number two, the job approval rating has been up over 50% now for four months. >> dana: that is not accurate. >> andrea: another thing, after all the negative ads, bob, mitt romney's favorability jumped up higher. the negative advertisements to paint him as a felon, bully and tax evade dor haven't worked. >> bob: his momentum stopped last week. >> andrea: how do you see that? early voting -- >> bob: wait. early voting -- >> andrea: significantly gone in his favor. don't give me that. early voting was so prominent for president obama. and liberals took the network touting it in 2008. >> bob: we'll talk about this after tuesday. >> eric: one more number came out today, unemployment, disturbing. among blacks 14.3%. jumped again. >> dana: the closing argument -- >> eric: very funny. >> dana: sorry. hel >> eric: they are telling us that cbs is announcing that the new york city marathon is officially -- >> dana: i was just going to say that. we're done. several developments on the libya ter
in attitude? it's called a momentum shift. >> obama: governor christie throughout this process has been responsive and aggressive and i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his compassion for the people of our state. >> jennifer: that's called political euphoria occurring when state, local, and federal officials of both parties work together to do what is in the best interests of the people. let's hope it is contagious. [♪ theme music ♪] >> jennifer: today is a great day to be a democrat, and progressive. it is going to be a great night in "the war room" all of you political junkies. sit back and get ready for some political euphoria. there are a whole batch of swing-state polls out today and the president is up in the vast majority. the president now has a five-point lead in ohio. we're going to turn ohio blue and you just keep watching these numbers up here. the president has a two-point lead, again, according to polls today, in virginia a very narrow one-point lead in florida. and according to a
president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. maybe more in ohio. we all feel i think. >> greta: it looks like we have some satellite trouble. we have lost the mayor. we -- the governor, of course, you see on the screen here. just to give you sort of a heads up what has been going on in ohio today. westchester, ohio and this is supposedly one of the biggest rallies that governor romney has had as they sort of move into the closing part of this campaign. at the campaign today -- at the rally, speaker of the house boehner, senator john mccain, mayor giuliani, senator rubio. they brought out all of the stars of the republican party because there is no doubt everybody thinks this is t
to be president of the united states. mitt romney criss crossing florida and president obama in new hampshire. swing state saturday. governor romny. and fox report courting undecided voters. and a local reporter hits the commander in chief with the big question on libya and what happened on the ground as the u.s. consulate was under attack by terrorist. were they denied help in the attack. we are finding out exactly what happened. also preparing for sandy. some 65 million americans in the projected path. i am not trying to be that way. i want them to be safe taking no chances. governors mobilizing every resource available and tracking the hurricane. the mara thon sprint by governor romny and president obama. and the race taking a tour. governor romney cancelling all event necessary virginia and will join his running mate congressman ryan in ohio. biden cancelled in virginia beach. a lot happening in politics including a live event we'll bring you as it happens. governor romney is in florida at this hour. and chief white house corpondant -- correspondant in new hampshire will keep you up to da
on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did congressman ryan do? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of the
, this is really one of the key swing districts in the swing state of north carolina, which president obama won by only 14,000 votes four years ago. so we've been talking to voters here. and it's fascinating. the american people are smart. even the folks who are swing voters, folks leaning romney are saying, look, one of the gentlemen we spoke to said, i hope this identity of the general election is where romney would be as president instead of moving to the right in the primaries that he had to do to get the nomination. one woman said the government considers me poor, but i'm concerned about the borrowing. there's concern about foreign policy under the romney administration. one woman said her brother's in the military. concerned about what that might mean for him. and one independent voter who's voting for president obama saying that she just doesn't believe mitt romney. and she isn't sure where his core is at. this has been a tensely fought state. the polls are really tight, and trending toward mitt romney. >> i want to talk more about the early voting. because there's been a lot of focus on
in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pennsylvania, they got a chance there? yes. is it likely? >> feels like they're looking for more
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
kerr, but some of the states that were strong obama like minnesota that are now in the lean obama column, and they have to send bill clinton out today to minnesota to try to help. >help. >> sean: i'm here to save my buddy, barack obama. >> the headlines coming out of that were so bad, i wouldn't have sent him in the first place. >> sean: here's the deal. they gotta send joe biden to pennsylvania because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >> sean: which ones? >> they're all sided. >> ask juan about the npr poll. >> go ahead, dana. >> let's talk about the npr poll. an 8-point swing? >> there's a margin of error, dana. hold on. dana was aro
that he faces re-election in a pretty democratic state, and obama understands that he faces re-election next week. those are political realities. they're politicians, and they don't deny that. but they were doing their jobs, and i think christie's role here, as i'm sure you know as a former governor, it was a big deal for christie to come out and do what he did. that also really hurt romney. >> eliot: yes, that was the political maneuver of the week. he played it perfectly. switch gears for a moment. i don't want to say that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important race that i would point to is the indiana race which is richard murdoch the tee party republican w
of the united states of america. >> what is the big deal. >> sean: like losing your virginity for obama. >> it's a joke, tucker. >> i actually like sex jokes, personally. let me just say, i mean, you would really have to be a liberal to believe that voting was on the same moral plane as like sex. i mean, one is like something you have t to do in order to secure your freedom. the other is something you do for fun, you enjoy doing. >> it's a joke. i don't think she really thinks that. >> i'm not mad. >> sean: answer the question. there's nothing cute about that ad. >> wouldn't a normal reelection campaign say vote for me because of all the great things i did over the last four years, here's what they are. >> they've done that. >> really? i haven't seen that. >> this ad is targeted at liberal elite women. >> sean: that want free birth control. >> it's just a tar ye targeted d towards this group. it's not against the law. >> it's not targete targeted to. >> sean: tur 2ubger, this is desperation, this is desperation. they can't run on their record. this isn't big bird bs, we're stuck with garbage,
president obama looking to close the deal in the crucial battle ground state of ohio. this is from mentor, ohio where the president is just about to speak. we're watching that very closely. before heading to today's event, though, the president visited fema headquarters to get a response to the efforts of aftermath of hurricane sandy. he is sending -- >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> meanwhile, mitt romney also has his sights on several key swing states today, starting with new hampshire. >> you saw the differences between barack obama and me in those debates. i like those debates. i got to be honest. i mean, he says it has to be this way. i say it can't stay this way. he's offering excuses. i'm offering a plan. i can't wait to get started. >> mitt romney will also visit iowa and colorado today, running mate paul ryan already wrapped up an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we
of the battleground, we're one of the states where president obama in one of the eight or nine states that are being contested. so there is a potential firewall for president obama if you look at ohio and wisconsin and nevada and iowa but it's only potential because all those states are very close. so we're seeing a pretty fears republican effort as well to flip wisconsin. that would have a dramatic impact on the electoral mass if they can take a state and flip it. and we're seeing a flurry of candidate visits next week. president obama will be here tuesday and paul ryan will be here wednesday. how much of the ect of this election comes from the ripple effect of the recall of governor walker? guest: i think there's been an interesting debate about what the recall told us about the presidential election. you can overstate the implications in some ways. a recall is a pretty extraordinary event and it was pretty clear in the recall fight that some voters were voting against the recall process. they didn't think it was appropriate. so you actually had in the exit poll in the recall in june. you had betw
the obama campaign is now going to go by advertising in some of these states as well. minnesota, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are
for president obama in mitt romney's must-win state of ohio. so we're going to see the candidates spend a lot of time up there in the upper midwest. ohio will get a ton of attention from both candidates. president obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting final few days here. rick, you've been a great asset to us throughout the campaign season. we appreciate you joining us. we'll hear from you once again after tuesday, the big day. rick klein again, our senior wa
america and a conservative america. there is the united states of america. >> barack obama. from there it was a string of chart toppers. >> fired up. >> fired up. >> ready to go. yes we can. this election has never been about me. it's about you. >> he was a sensation. but recently obama made a startling announcement. >> this is my last political campaign. >> yes, come november 6th, it's over. with just one last chance to catch this great artist, we weren't going to miss it. >> i'm so excited to be here. >> yeah, i'm kind of like an audacity of hope girl. >> for me the new stuff will never live up to the classic. >> change you can believe in gave me hope for the future for my children. >> lowell, hello. change you can believe in got me pregnant with my second child. >> we've also had a lot of momentum, a lot more dynamic. this time he's more chill. >> i love the economy's chasing strong head headwinds. >> it's okay. i like the old stuff better. >> tell her about how all the new stuff is [bleeped]. i've been trying to tell her. >> the new sufficient is terrible. >> you can keep you
the primaries. but in every single swing state, the obama campaign has two, three times the number of offices in the states to deploy volunteers that romney has. but a very underreported and underappreciated phenomenon that's going on in these battleground states is that the obama campaign also has air superiority. we so often look at what's being spent. but if you're sitting in your living room, if you're a swing voter, what's being spent doesn't really matter to you. it's what you're seeing. and c-mac calculated that in the last week in these battleground states, the obama campaign had more than twice as many spots on the air as the romney campaign did. so for every obama campaign ad that you see in ohio or virginia, you're going to see half as many romney ads. 17,000 romney ads to 36,000 obama ads. even if you count in all the outside groups that are spending, there were still 15,000 more ads with the democratic message. another thing we calculated, positive/negative. mitt romney ads, 99% negative in these battleground states. the 1%, there were a couple spanish language ads, and there was
states has president obama on top. it's now all hands on deck. vice president biden stumped in iowa. >> the american people are asking themselves the question in these final days, who can they trust? >> reporter: bill clinton is working just as hard as the candidates. >> barack obama should be the next president. >> reporter: and in ohio, ann romney got emotional as she asked for votes. >> we have come to know this country on such an extraordinary level. and i can't even tell you how much i love it. >> reporter: yesterday, new york city mayor michael bloomberg endorsed president obama. the independent mayor has been critical of both the president and mitt romney. but he said sandy changed his thinking and that president obama will take action on climate change. rob and sunny, back to you. >> karen, thanks a lot. tuesday night, let abc be your place for live up-to-the-minute results with george stephanopoulos and diane sawyer. >>> the former president of penn state has been charged with a cover-up in the jerry sandusky scandal. graham spanier is accused of perjury, obstruction and ch
in virginia, that obama has a more nimble campaign and has been able to adapt to the situation in these states. >> jeff, it's great to have you on, i read you all the time. you know, in politics like in life, there's rain and there's sunshine. and, you know, these guys act like there shouldn't be rain. i just like the sunshine. we don't live on that planet. we live on a planet where you get breaks, you don't get breaks. but there's limbaugh -- forget limbaugh, let's talk about reality. you get the breaks. something happens where you can use your best stuff. i think the president has had that opportunity now. >> and i think -- i think howard is right, he has been able to, you know, become more -- he looks more like a president now. gosh, for several weeks, maybe for several months, he's looked like a democratic candidate for president rather than a sitting president. so i think we're sort of seeing him in a presidential moment. he's finally sort of filling out this -- the air force one jacket he had on and kind of like he did in the early days of his term, but i think the real question is, is t
of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned, they're literally trying to pick up the pieces that remain from their homes, the pieces of their lives. yesterday the president and governor chris christie of new jersey toured the destruction on the jersey shore right near atlantic city. the mayor of atlantic city joins us this morning. let's talk specifically, sir, and thanks for joining us this morning, about the damage that's happened to atlantic city. you have the iconic boardwalk, you have the casinos, you have lots of hotels. fill me in on how atlantic city is faring. >> well, let me tell you that the boardwalk did suffer some major damage, but property
